As the latter scenario would leave us with one point less that's good analysis.

Was gutted last night but feeling better on reflection this morning. Number of factors that made it an especially sore one, firstly us being excellent at Bournemouth and Liverpool being average at Everton hoodwinked me into feeling like we were on for causing an upset. Couple that with them returning to full strength, us having to field a few starters we wouldn't have wanted to and losing our best player in the first few minutes made me feel very sorry for myself.
Add in 90 minutes of Carragher and the other commentator Dutch ruddering each other over Liverpool and you have a particularly unenjoyable watch.
For me, although not awful footballers, having Meyer and Sakho on over 100k a week is not sustainable at best, borderline a joke at worst. Meyer needs to play as a David Silva type floating number 10 which will never happen and if someone is willing to pay to take Sakho's wages off our books I think we need to snap their hands off now.
3 points against Burnley please.

 


4 playoff finals, Claridge, Hopkin, Shipperley, Phillips....

Life's never dull!

Sakho he had a good comeback. Played his usual high risk approach but some of his back heels were radical. Great to see him back and on form.

He was bloody awful,looked like bambi on ice. Needs to be moved on, as soon as.

Guiata was a big miss last night but I think the bigger miss was Benteke. When your game plan is to defend deep and hit Liverpool on the break you need a target man to take the pressure off.

Benteke showed against Bournemouth that he was an outlet, when they occasionally put us under pressure. Liverpool are a class act but as soon as I heard he wasn't playing I though we are in trouble.

If only he could bang a few goals in as well.

 


One more point

I've come with stats to back up my arguement. You've just come with insults. Says more about me that it does about you.

Roy's had a medieocare career. He sets up teams well and plays the percentages other than that his ability is pretty limited.

We've come 11th, 10th, 15th (+ Cup Final), 14th, 11th, and 12th in the premiership. Pulis and Pardew managed mid table finishes with teams much worse than we had now. Being 9th with 8 games to go isn't a spectacular feet.

The manager has thrown in the towel before we started last night. What kind of message does that send out to the players?

Anyway. Let's see how we do against Burnley.

Well that was painful to watch :-( As brilliant as Liverpool were, we were absolutely dreadful. Played far to deep and what is normally our strongest part, our midfield didnít compete? Ayew didnít get a look in as our lone striker but like everyone else when he did get the ball he gave it straight away. Townsend was perhaps the worst of them all. How we kept it down to 4 I donít know. We literally rolled over last night which was an unusual thing to see from us. No one played well. Yes, Liverpoolís goals were good but Ayew making the foul for the first was unnecessary. Not closing them down so that they could fire a thunderbolt was also terrible. As for the record of not having a touch in there half showed how bad we were. I was at Anfield for the 9.0 defeat many years ago and we played much better that night than yesterday. It should have been the same score last night, we got away with it thankfully. Letís hope it was down to the missing players and that we perform in our next match as we did in the first half at Bournemouth. Last night was embarrassing. Moan over, letís move on :-)

Good post. Not being picky or disagreeing with you, but just to point out that I believe the stat was no touches in the oppo penalty area.

I too was at the 0-9 and was actually encouraged by how well the players carried themselves. Unfortunately they played with total naivety.

Yep! As was said during the SKY commentary, our success this season is down to our having beaten/not lost to the bottom teams. Indeed, as of Saturday post-Bournemouth we, along with Liverpool, have taken the most points off the bottom 6 (27pts from 11 games for us with 8 wins and 3 draws).IN other words we have taken just 15 points off the other 13 teams in the remaining 20 games (including tonight). We did the same last season with 16 out of 18 points off the bottom 3. That's how we stay in the league - beat/don't lose to the teams down the bottom, and, of course, win the occasional game against all odds like Citeh last season and Manure this etc.

Good stat. Then looking at our remaining games think "challenging for Europe" is a tad optimistic, with our run in. However I would certainly hope to see us at least mustering a few blows in these games, compared to last night, Citeh and Leicester at home. COYP !!

An apt comparison, indeed. As I said in an earlier post, the sooner he goes back to France and off our wage bill, the better. The number of times he was in oodles of space with the ball and still managed to let the Scousers close him down... [add your own ending]

I hate the Scouse controlled media which makes any defeat to Liverpool more painful. With regard to the game with our injuries we had no outlet and no amount of effort was going to change that. Liverpool were comfortable but given they were at full strength and Salah and Robertson had been rested it was not a surprise.

If we have any aspirations beyond just survival next season then we need to spend money on players that fit our system. Roy really has worked wonders on a shoestring, threadbare squad but nights like tonight lay bare our limitations.

The worry is how the virus has affected our spending power and also how its affects will possibly change the whole transfer system itself. Financially we could be tight.

...even eclipsed the number of pro-scouse pundits on show.
